Beautiful Handmade Statement Necklaces and other Fabulousness from Neena Shilvock - Inspirations and Designs From the Week Gone by
Hello people, I hope you are all having a joyful and peaceful Holiday Season. We cancelled Christmas this year - the passing of my friend Suzy, and my mother weigh heavily on me and I couldn't contemplate any celebrations, of any kind. It's all just a bit too raw just now. Of course we had a hearty meal - but that was it - no cards, no tree, no gifts, and very little cheer.
I've started a necklace but I cannot decide whether it is just in it's 'fugly' stage or I need to cut it up and retrieve the elements. I'm leaning towards the latter, but just now it is sitting on a pile of beads, glaring balefully at me, daring me to pick it up. It took me ages to plan how I was going to make this piece up as I'm trying something new, which is what is preventing me from cutting it up in the first instance. Anyway, I haven't anything to show you today - my excuse is of the 'Miss, the dog ate my homework,' variety! I thought I'd show you a few of my favourite pieces from 2022 - just a few pretty pictures.
It's been very difficult to choose from all the pieces I made this year, but I was determined to pick no more than a dozen. There are, of course many more on the website - do take a look when you have a minute.
I'm working all weekend, so will wish you goodbye, and a very Happy New Year one and all.
That's me for this year folks, I'll be back to catch up with you early in the New Year - once I've made a firm decision about the piece I've started, and come close to cutting up a dozen times.
Be good, and once again, a very happy New Year
